saying the administration's response was inept and ignorant and susan rice blaming it on a spontaneous protest was inexcusable. >> it's either willful ignorance or abysmal ignorance to think people come to spontaneous demonstrations with mortars and heavy weapons pant attack goes on for hours. bill: both sides are complaining. governor romney's team says the white house is still getting its story mixed up. >> reporter: democrats say republicans are politicizing the tragic attack that cost of life of four americans. the republicans say the white house is cover ugging up the details for political reasons. here is axlerod. >> the president called it an act of terror the day after it happened. but when you are the responsible party, when you are the administration and you have a responsibility to act on what you know and what the intelligence community believed. >> reporter: actually it was several days after the benghazi attack before the white house called it terrorism and that came after the national terrorism chief called it aterror attack. >> i think now based on the recommendations o
in banghazi. the question is why did they send susan rice out? why i was it necessary for her to go out on five shows and say it was spontaneous. why not saying we have an ongoing investigation. i'm not going to say more. we're going to learn more. >> secretary clinton believes that ambassador rice has done a superb job. let's just start that. we completely reject calls here in this building. >> at a time when most americans would want to rally around our country at the death of four americans serving our country, instead we've had this bizarre response, which only leads to me believe there was, number one, there was gross negligence involved, or the president doesn't want us to realize libya may be a failed state in the fbi agents can't even make into banghazi. >> i watched the presentation. i thought it was amazing that someone in her position would go on with that degree of certainty, that fast, and that authoritatively and be that wrong. >> did you know the chairman of the homeland security committee has asked for susan rice to resign? does the president have 100% confidence in susa
? was it's a lie? >> i think that susan rice needs to step down. one of two things occurred. either she saw the intelligence and decided she was going to nuance or tweak and say what she said, calling it's a response to the video, or she was told by those above her to go out and say this was a response to the video. >> eithe either ambassador rices deliberately misleading the american people or showed such a lack of knowledge or sophistication she shouldn't told that position anymore. >> today we see things differently. i mean, we see the thing unravel in banghazi. the question is why did they send susan rice out? why i was it necessary for her to go out on five shows and say it was spontaneous. why not saying we have an ongoing investigation. i'm not going to say more. we're going to learn more. >> secretary clinton believes that ambassador rice has done a superb job. let's just start that. we completely reject calls here in this building. >> at a time when most americans would want to rally around our country at the death of four americans serving our country, instead we've had this bizar
it gets susan rice off the hook. peter king is calling for her to resign. does that get her off the hook for coming out five days after this happened on five different sunday shows and saying this was spontaneous protest related to this film. i don't think so. we all know what james clapper's office said. we know that they have been evolving on this. but it took five days. >> not only that what she said was unequivocal. why not just say the safest thing that all administration say when they don't want to release information which is the investigation is continuing. we don't have all the information. >> why jump to the conclusion that this is about a film and each at the president's u.n. speech this week he highlighted this film through throughout this u.n. speech leading many to believe that the main issue is this youtube clip that seems relatively insignificant in the grand scheme of siblings charles krauthammer also had a similar take on this and he responded to that james clapper statement last night. take a listen. >> well, you read the dni -- dnr statement it's a cover your rump sta
the white house internally classify something as terror and send ambassador susan rice days later to claim it was responsible taken chris? >> that is question. it appears there is a cover-up. i've been trying, judy has been trying to track down what has happened. you are told what they were operating under the best information she had and she was kousmg it with most recent information. she was so specific but it was just contrary to common sense. there is no -- to compare what was happening in cairo to say that the movie caused it. protestors don't care rp gs and things like that. so the media had a disturbing lack of curiosity about this and holding their feet to the fire. >> there is another element. up in news cycle the desire to get something out into the public arena quickly often brings mistakes like this. i think as colin powell demonstration at the u.n. supposedly in iraq and went on the sunday talk showing. he was talking about what he thought at the time was true. it may or may have been true and stuff may have gone to syria, but this is function of news cycle. >> the statement m

it was preplanned within 24 hours after the death of the ambassador. yet susan rice, jay cancer oh, several obama officials going out saying it was a response to the movie. is this a cover-up? >> they lie. there is no question about it. by the way, if the republicans did that, there would be hell to pay. everybody would call for resignations and it would be terrible. but they lie. everybody knew they were lying. they knew almost immediately because it was obviously an attack. this had nothing to do with that stupid nieces made and it was stupid and it was ridiculous. but they lie. they've been lying for years now. they get away with it and the press allows them to get away with it. >> steve: so you're very clear, there are people who are lying about it in the white house. but -- >> they knew they were lying. i mean, they were saying it with a very straight face and they knew they were lying and certainly after the first 24 hours, it became the big lie and they kept doing it and the press allowed them to get away where w it. >> gretchen: why were they lying? >> in order to save face. in order to s
, do you agree it's the fog of war that led people leak jay carney and susan rice to say it's as the result of a ridiculous movie trailer? >> if this wasn't for political reasons it's out of sheer incompetence. and to cover up solyndra and fast and furious, misinformation for political purposes. so the question we have to ask is did they do this out of incompetence or are they liars? >> that's a good question, penny, even just yesterday, james clapper, the director of office of national intelligence came out and said, look, this was sort of our fault. we didn't have all the information right way way. however, witnesses on the ground, they seemed to know it was a terrorist attack and as we now know the white house internally labeled it as a terror attack and they knew there were the al-qaeda off shoots, may have been preparing stuff for september 11th. is this a failure of intelligence? >> again, let us go back. there's a lot of different informati information, and in a responsible manner and go out-- the president, i'll remind everybody, the president the day after in his st
it a terrorist, al-qaeda terror attack and everyone out there, susan rice, hillary clinton, jay carney saying it was the movie. >> bob: with all due respect to our reporting on this, having dealt with the intelligence community for many years they did not confirm this was a terror attack on the 12th. these were intelligence sources who said they believed as i believed and everybody else believed it probably was a terrorist attack. the al-qaeda connection, everybody in eastern libya -- >> eric: bob, bob -- >> bob: let me finish. >> eric: please finish. what you are saying is incorrect. >> bob: it's not incorrect. i bet you whatever you want to bet, there is nothing, any intelligence report. i listened to the intelligence guys sit back and they guess what happened. how would they know? f.b.i. is investigating this. they weren't on the ground. if they knew so much about it, how come cnn got ahold of a diary by the ambassador? it's the most ridiculous concept i've heard. >> eric: so according to our reporter, u.s. officials confirm they had several intelligence assets on the ground, c.i.a. on the

. >> september 16. ambassador to the united nations susan rice goes on five sunday talk shows and called it spontaneous. >> this was not a preplanned, premedicated attack. >> september 17. >> simply on the basis of what ambassador rice has publicly disclosed, does the united states government regard what happened in benghazi as act of terror? >> again, i'm not going to put labels thon until we have a complete investigation. >> you don't regard it as act of terrorism? >> i don't think we know enough. i don't think we know enough. >> bret: september 18 on the "david letterman show." >> is this an act of war? are we at war now? what happened here? >> here is what happened. you had a video released by somebody who lives here, shadowy character who is extremely offensive video directed at muhammad and islam. >> making fun of the prophet muhammad. >> making fun of the prophet muhammad. so this caused great offense in much of the muslim world. but what also happened is extremists and terrorists. use this as excuse. to attack variety of the embassies including the consulate in libya. >> septembe

doing, what ambassador to the u.n. suc susan rice did, what the president did, was plain tell the american people a falsehood. >> sean: it was never plausible to me from the beginning. here's the anniversary of 9/11. two waves of terrorist attacks. the libyan president said it was a terrorist attack from day one. they spontaneously had mortars and rocket-propelled grenades in their back pocket as they're protesting a movie trailer. it never made sense. the president spent his entire speech at the u.n. saying he's sorry for the movie, how much he condemns the movie. >> president obama has almost a psychological need to be totally blind to the realities of islamic extremism. it is astonishing to me how consistently he rejects all information, which would teach him that there are people out there who actually want to kill us. i mean, it is so beyond any reasonable way to explain it, that it's almost though as he has a desperate need to believe in something totally false. >> sean: going back to these pictures here, what they ask in this letter that hillary clinton will receive tom

. they said, susan rice said on this broadcast last sunday, after the president of libya said this was the work of terrorists, she said, no, this was because of a spontaneous demonstration that had to do with that film. now they have come around to saying, well, yes, it was a terrorist attack. is mitt romney making enough of this? i haven't heard too much from him on that. >> bob, what struck me-- and i have nope the director of national intelligence for years. he's a bright man. he's a competent man. this administration in effect is now saying, "oh, don't blame the united nations ambassador. don't blame the white house spokesman. don't blame the president, because our intelligence system failed so decisively." i don't know which worries me more, the idea that the intelligence system took weeks to figure out the obvious-- although we are told in fact they had information the day before the attack because the video that went out from al qaeda asking that the ambassador-- somebody be killed on 9/11 was a day earlier. so i don't know whether i feel more comfortable knowing the ad
news alert, moments ago the state department can defended u.n. ambassador susan rice after new calls went out this weekend demanding her resignation. congressional critics are angry that ms. rice was talking to the media some four days after a terror attack killed four americans in libya and telling reporters across this nation that it was a spontaneous protest that was behind the attack when fox news and now other news outlets have reported that the white house knew within 24 hours that this was a terror attack and not some spontaneous event. the administration is maintaining that they gave us the information as it evolved and as it came to be known by them. there is, at a minimum, some question about that. the white house is also facing tough new questions about the president's decision to attend a campaign event in vegas within 24 hours of the attack. white house senior adviser david plouffe -- keep in mind, this is the first time they've put the senior advisers out there since all this happened -- but they were on the sunday shows this weekend, and mr. plouffe was challenged outr
of sound that are sort of prominent voices in this story. and the first one is from susan rice, now about 12 days ago. the second is mike huckabee just moments ago on our air. let's listen to those. >> what happened initially was it was a spontaneous reaction to what just transpired in cairo. as a consequence of the video that, people gathered outside the embassy and then, it grew very violent. >> i think frankly if, you know, this issue really gets the traction that it deserves, and let me say, that it deserves, let's go back. richard nixon was forced out of office because he lied. and because he covered some stuff up. i will be blunt and tell you this. nobody died in watergate. we have some people who are dead because of this. there are questions to be answered and americans ought to demand to get answers. martha: pretty strong words there from governor mike huckabee. what do you think about that watergate comparison? >> well i think the point he made about the credibility of the president is absolutely critical. and i think obama does have a credibility problem. now, whether, as i say
in susan rice's head that it was september 11th that this happened? why did they put it out? because he didn't want his narrative in the middle east contradicted. things are moving in the right rection. things aren't moving in the right direction. they're moving back in the other direction and he made a lot of the wrong bets. get rid of mubarak, gadhafi. >> you think getting rid of mubarak was a -- >> i probably agree with hillary clinton. that mu babarak moved out more carefully with more emphasis on what comes about mubarak as opposed to, we move out, an ally of the united states, and replace it with a guy who would like to have the blind sheikh return to egypt, the man who wanted to bomb my city, was responsible for the attack in 1993 on the world trade center. you don't think things like that destabilize the middle east and make people wonder in the middle east about president obama's judgment? >> governor romney said he would support democratic values. on another hand saying he would basically fund candidates to win that are friendly to the united states. how is that espousing demo
